Noshing in Nashville

Nashville’s food scene is booming. With award-winning chefs popping up all over the city, it has become a hotspot for foodies and culinary arts students alike. But if you really want to get a glimpse into Nashville’s history, you have to visit some of its iconic restaurants. These spots have been around for decades, hosting legends and creating food crazes, while still preserving their unique histories. 

Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, The Loveless Cafe, and Hattie B’s Hot Chicken are great places to start when looking for Southern staples. But there are plenty of other flavors on the Nashville menu, including the Italian food at Rolf and Daughters, the view at Bourbon Steak, and Mas Tacos, which grew from a food truck to offer the best $3 tacos in town!
